Dear Willie D:
I just wanted to say hello and also thank you for all of the awesome Geto Boys and fantastic solo albums you put out. I hope everything is going great for you nowadays also. Have you considered putting out any other albums in the meantime, or are you concentrating on bigger and better things nowadays?
I try to avoid answering music related questions because I think there are more important issues to address that people want answers to. But since I would not have this column if not for my music career and a number of people continue to inquire about my music future, I would be remiss to remain silent.
As you know with the market being saturated with everybody and their yard man rapping, records labels not investing in the long-term success of artists, fans pirating music and radio stations favoring booty music over substance, it's difficult for artists who have something to say to be heard, so that's why I haven't put out anything new. I'm put off by the politics.
I don't know about bigger and better, but I have moved on to other things. I'm doing some stuff in Hollywood and I'm writing a few books. I've never stopped recording, so eventually I will release new material. I can't give you a timeline as to when, but until then, hop into your car, turn your favorite Geto Boys or Willie D song all the way up, then roll up on a policeman and ask, "Excuse me bro, aren't you the cop from The Village People?"
I FOUND A CONDOM IN HIS POCKET
Dear Willie D:
I have been in a relationship for 16 years with the same guy and I found a condom in his pocket. Is he cheating?
Out of Pocket:
Are thongs found between booty cheeks?
